Fashion: The Definitive History of Costume and Style

"Dressing in style and creating a style of your own is as much about keeping an eye on what's coming next as knowing what came before. Fashion takes the reader on a fabulous tour across centuries, tracking changes in dress from the draped fabrics of ancient times to the runway sensations of the new millennium. 

Visually stunning catalogs of images drawn from paintings, sculptures, and photographs of the period accompanied by expert commentary capture the turning points in fashion history: when hemlines rose to reveal a glimpse of stocking, youngsters pulled on jeans and invented "teenagers," the red carpet became the runway, and celebrities became designers.

Photographic tours showcase classic pieces from every angle, and closeup images of fabric, tailoring, and accessories reveal the details that make them iconic or simply extraordinary.

Beautiful double-page images capture a fashion mood or moment to evoke the flavor of the times - from the excess and extravagance of the royal courts to the rise of the supermodel.

Full-page pictures and timelines tell the stories of fashion's movers and shakers: the icons who set the style for each generation, and the designers who dressed them.

If it's ever been in fashion

It's in Fashion."
